Comforting One Another by Karen Mains

Comforting One Another by Karen Mains continues the autobiographical series and uses Michelangelo's Pieta as a metaphor.  I reference the personal pain caused by writing Lonely No More in order to construct a theology around the meaning of mercy, with pietas from art, literature, film, news photography, poetry and real life building pictures of how God's love shows itself forth in the world.  This is a book for those who are suffering and for those who want to hold them. I define a pieta as any person or group of people holding a broken body facing any death-like scenario. I think this book has helped others; it certainly allowed me to make sense of my own pain.  This covers the age from 52-56.
